The production area is in the surroundings of Pescosansonesco (PE), 550 mt. AMSL. Vineyards are located at the feet of the Gran Sasso in a very windy place where the clay-chalky soil is rich, the subsoil rocky and there is a strong range of temperature.

This wine is obtained from the oldest Montepulciano vineyards (in average 40 years old) that yield about 80/90 quintals per hectare. The grapes, usually hand-harvested during the last week of October – beginning of November, are pressed and fermented for 20 days. After a short storage, the wine is aged for 16-18 months in 20 hl oak barrels.

The wine matches with red meat, strongly seasoned or herbal cheeses, wild boar sausages, tripe and lamb.
